Not for me 3 stars by mikahel312 Mar 23, 2023 (Read all my 3 reviews)
First, the screenshots are outdated. The program now has an Office type interface. The whole application seems to be designed for use in an office environment. Too complex to bother with for home use. Notepad and one of the many clipboard utilities suit my use better. show Review details
Very useful, but.... 4 stars by Abraxas Nov 23, 2014 (Read all my 4 reviews)
This was a great addition to my PC for writing reports and online commenting. It accepted new phrases easily and even popped up and reminded me if I used the same hotkey or sequence. Nearly anything you don't like can be turned off or modified. But, and this was the big one for me, the program is TIME-BOMBED. When you first start using it, it works fine. But if you are, say, in the middle of a thesis and need to use it a lot, the messages start popping up. It amounts to what basically is a threat, telling you to upgrade and pay or you are violating the license. I wasn't. I was pasting my email address many times. And these annoying messages are actually INSIDE the text you pasted, so you need to go back and repair the damage by removing the threat and retyping what you wanted there. Don't fall for it. Get something else, preferably something that is really "freeware". show Review details
